15th November – Deaths & Events in Northern Ireland Troubles

Key Events & Deaths on this day in Northern Ireland Troubles

15th November

—————————————————————–

Saturday 15 November 1975

During a disturbance involving members of the Ulster Defence Association (UDA) and Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) at the Park Bar in Tiger’s Bay, Belfast, a Protestant civilian was shot dead. The fracas was part of an ongoing feud between the UDA and the UVF. A Catholic civilian died almost one year after being injured in a Loyalist bomb attack in Crossmaglen.

Friday 15 November 1985

Anglo-Irish Agreement Signed Margaret Thatcher, then British Prime Minister, and Garret FitzGerald, then Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister), signed the Anglo-Irish Agreement (AIA) at Hillsborough, County Down, on behalf of the two governments. The first part of the document stated:

“The two Governments (a) affirm that any change in the status of Northern Ireland would only come about with the consent of a majority of the people of Northern Ireland.”

The Agreement established the Inter-Governmental Conference that for the first time gave the Irish government a consultative role in matters related to security, legal affairs, politics, and cross-border co-operation. The Agreement also stated that the two governments would support any future wish by the people of Northern Ireland to enter into a united Ireland.

Many Nationalists saw this as an important development. Unionists were outraged at the Agreement and began a long campaign to have the AIA removed.

[The AIA was only superseded when the Good Friday Agreement was implemented on 2 December 1999.]

Loyalist paramilitaries also reacted and the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) declared all members of the Anglo-Irish Conference and Secretariat to be ‘legitimate targets’.

Ian Gow, then British Treasury Minister, resigned in protest at the signing of the Agreement.

Saturday 15 November 1986

Unionist Rally Against AIA Unionists and Loyalists held a large demonstration in front of Belfast City Hall to protest against the Anglo-Irish Agreement (AIA) on the first anniversary of the signing of the Agreement. Following the demonstration some shops in the centre of the city were damaged when Loyalists clashed with the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC).

Thursday 15 November 1990

Gerry Adams, then leader of Sinn Féin (SF), made a response to Peter Brooke’s speech of the 9 November 1990.

Tuesday 15 November 1988

Protests organised by Unionists against the Anglo-Irish Agreement were less well supported than previous years.

Wednesday 15 November 1989

Unionist protests against the Anglo-Irish Agreement drew very little support.

Friday 15 November 1991

Two Irish Republican Army (IRA) members were killed when the bomb they were carrying exploded prematurely in St Albans, Hertfordshire, England.

Sunday 15 November 1992 

The Irish Republican Army (IRA) attempted to plant a large bomb, estimated at 1,000 pounds, at Canary Wharf in London but were prevented by security men.

Monday 15 November 1993

The Belfast Telegraph (a Northern Ireland newspaper) carried a report that Sinn Féin (SF) had held face-to-face meetings with senior British Government officials and exchanged documents about how to end IRA violence. One source described the talks as ‘protracted’ but that they were ended by June. SF refused to deny the claims, but the British Government flatly rejected them.

[Confirmation of the secret talks broke in the United Kingdom (UK) media on 28 November 1993.]

John Major, then British Prime Minister, made a keynote speech on Northern Ireland to an audience at the Guildhall in London. He said that the opportunity for peace in Northern Ireland was better than at any time for many years

Wednesday 15 November 1995

Gerry Adams, then President of Sinn Féin (SF), speaking in Washington called for a Bosnia style peace talks on the future of Northern Ireland.

Saturday 15 November 1997

Sinn Féin (SF) held a meeting in Cullyhanna, south Armagh. Francie Molloy, then a member of SF’s talks team, told the meeting that if the Stormont negotiations were to collapse then “we simply go back to what we know best”.

[Many people took this to be a reference to the Irish Republican Army (IRA) ending its ceasefire and the comments sparked controversy.]

John Hume, then leader of the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), addressed the party’s annual conference and said that “equality of allegiance” was the key to political progress. He said that he wanted agreement with Unionists and “their allegiance as well as ours” was required for a solution to the problems of Northern Ireland.

Monday 15 November 1999

George Mitchell, then chairman of the Review of the Agreement, issued a statement which indicated that a formula to overcome the decommissioning and devolution impasse had almost been achieved. John de Chastelain, then head of the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning (IICD), issued a report which called upon “the paramilitary organisations to respond positively by appointing authorised representatives” to deal with the issue of decommissioning.

A man was shot in the leg in a paramilitary ‘punishment’ attack in the Mount Vernon area of north Belfast. Loyalist paramilitaries were responsible for the attack. A pipe bomb was thrown by Loyalists at the home of a Catholic family in north Belfast. Hillhall Presbyterian church hall in Lisburn, County Down, was destroyed in an arson attack.

An appeal case on behalf of Lee Clegg, then a soldier in the Parachute Regiment, began in Belfast.

Lee Clegg

The appeal was against his four year sentence for attempting to wound Martin Peake on 30 September 1990. On 11 March 1999 Clegg won his retrial for the murder of Karen Reilly in the same incident. [Clegg had been released from prison in 1995.] The National Development Plan for the Republic of Ireland was launched at Dublin Castle by Bertie Ahern, then Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister), who said it was “an investment on a scale never seen before in our history”. More than half of the allocated £40.6 billion was to be invested in infrastructure, including roads, public transport, housing, water and sewerage, with the largest single allocation (£6 billion) going towards social and affordable housing.

Wednesday 15 November 2000

Ten homes had to be evacuated after a pipe-bomb was discovered outside a house in Glendun Close in Portrush, County Antrim, following a telephone warning. The Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) said they had not established a motive for the attack but added they did not believe it was sectarian. British Army (BA) explosives experts defused the device.

Thursday 15 November 2001

Six people were arrested in London and Liverpool, England, under the Terrorism Act. The arrests were believed to be in connection with recent bomb attacks in England by the “real” Irish Republican Army (rIRA).

[Following the arrests police began a search of a disused farm in Tingley village, West Ardsley, near Leeds. A seventh person was arrested on Sunday 18 November 2001.]

Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh tour the grounds of Stormont in Belfast,

Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh paid a one-day visit to Northern Ireland. The Queen visited the Waterside area of Derry (her last visit to the city was in 1953), Hillsborough Castle, Lisburn, and Banbridge.

10th November – Deaths & Events in Northern Ireland Troubles

Key Events & Deaths on this day in Northern Ireland Troubles

10th November

————————————————————–

Monday 10 November 1975

The ‘incident centre’ in Derry was blown up in a bomb attack carried out by the Irish Republican Army (IRA). The IRA in the city was opposed to the truce.

Monday 10 November 1986

Ulster Resistance Formed Loyalists held a closed meeting at the Ulster Hall in Belfast. The main speakers at the meeting were Ian Paisley, then leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), Peter Robinson of the DUP, and Ivan Foster. During the meeting a new organisation, Ulster Resistance, was formed to ‘take direct action as and when required’ to end the Anglo-Irish Agreement (AIA). [Ulster Resistance was to take the place of the ‘Ulster Clubs’ that had been formed on 2 November 1985.]

Saturday 10 November 1990

The Irish Republican Army (IRA) shot and killed two members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) and two civilians in County Armagh.

Tuesday 10 November 1992

End of Political Talks Unionists withdrew from the political talks (later known as the Brooke / Mayhew talks) and brought the process to an end. Their action was provoked by the restart of work by the Maryfield secretariat for the Anglo-Irish Intergovernmental Conference (AIIC). Patrick Mayhew, then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, said that informal party contacts would continue.

[The talks had lasted two years and had cost an estimated £5 million.]

Thursday 10 November 1994

Frank Kerr (54), a Catholic civilian who was a Post Office worker in a sorting office, was shot dead during a robbery. The shooting happened in Clanrye Street, Newry, County Down.

[On 20 November 1994 the Irish Republican Army (IRA) admitted that its members had been responsible though it claimed the killing had not been sanctioned by the Army Council of the IRA. Reacting to the killing the Irish government suspended the release of nine Republican prisoners due on 11 November 1994. The prisoners were later released on 22 December 1994.]

Friday 10 November 1995

Garda Síochána (the Irish police) arrested two men after seizing explosives, estimated at 1,500 pounds (700kgs), about one mile from the County Armagh border. [Further bomb making equipment and ammunition were found at a farm near Castleblayney, County Monaghan, in the following week.]

Sunday 10 November 1996

The possibility of an election pact between Sinn Féin (SF) and the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) was discussed at the SDLP annual conference. It was decided that arrangements could only be entered into after an Irish Republican Army (IRA) ceasefire.

Tuesday 10 November 1998

A delegation from Sinn Féin (SF) travelled to London for talks with Tony Blair, then British Prime Minister, about what they saw as the stalled peace process. On his first official visit to the Republic, the Duke of Edinburgh referred to “these rather artificial divisions between North and South”. [The visit was seen as an attempt to normalise relationships between the Republic of Ireland and Britain and was believed to path the way for a visit by the Queen at some future date.]

Tuesday 9 November 1999

John Paul and Phillip McGroarty appeared at Limavady Courthouse, County Derry, charged with the murder of Jonathon Cairns in Ballykelly, County Derry, in April 1999. The killing of the teenager was not believed to have been sectarian. A crowd of people outside the courthouse tried to attack the accused as they were taken away.

Peter Mandelson, then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, gave a speech about political developments at a lunch for the Ireland Fund of Great Britain.

Wednesday 10 November 1999

A pipe-bomb with a jar of nails attached to it was discovered on the windowsill of a house in Dromara Street, off the mainly Nationalist lower Ormeau Road in south Belfast. One woman was in the house at the time. The device was later made safe by an Army bomb disposal team. The attack was carried out by Loyalist paramilitaries

Friday 10 November 2000

The Commission of Inquiry into the Dublin and Monaghan bombings wrote a letter to Peter Mandelson, then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, seeking assistance with matters related to the Inquiry.

[Further correspondence took place throughout 2001 but no information was supplied by the British government until 26 February 2002.]

Independence Day – What’s it all about?

Independence Day of the United States, also referred to as Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire.[1] Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.[2][3][4]

July 4th – Independence Day

During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain rule.[5][6] After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4. A day earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:

The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.[7]

Adams’s prediction was off by two days. From the outset, Americans celebrated independence on July 4, the date shown on the much-publicized Declaration of Independence, rather than on July 2, the date the resolution of independence was approved in a closed session of Congress.[8]

Historians have long disputed whether Congress actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, even though Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin all later wrote that they had signed it on that day. Most historians have concluded that the Declaration was signed nearly a month after its adoption, on August 2, 1776, and not on July 4 as is commonly believed.[9][10][11][12][13]

Coincidentally, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Although not a signer of the Declaration of Independence, but another Founding Father who became a President, James Monroe, died on July 4, 1831, thus becoming the third President in a row who died on the holiday. Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President, was born on July 4, 1872, and, so far, is the only U.S. President to have been born on Independence Day.

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace – Wikipedia page for those who didn’t know she was a star!

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace (/æʃˈln ˈhɔrɡən ˈwɒlɨs/; born 28 December 1978) is a British glamour model, fashion designer, magazine columnist, actress, and television & media personality. She rose to fame in 2006, when she appeared, and finished third, in the seventh series of reality TV show Big Brother.

Confrontation: Tempers once again flared as Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace and Marc O'Neil confronted each other in the Big Brother house on Wednesday evening

Early life

Horgan-Wallace’s mother was Sophia Horgan, a fashion designer, and her father is Steve Wallace, a car dealer. They separated when she was three years old.[1] She was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness by her mother in North London[2] and moved schools several times due to clashes with fellow pupils.[2] At the age of 16, Horgan-Wallace stopped living with her mother and stayed with friends before moving to a women’s hostel.[2][3] She was reunited with her father at the age of 18 after he tracked her down.[4]

It has been reported that Horgan-Wallace won a Prince’s Trust grant to take a beauty therapy course at college, and that she had jobs in shoe shops and as a promotions girl.[2] Her official biography states that she studied at the London College of Fashion, and that she took part-time promotional jobs to help fund her education.

Career

2006: Big Brother

Horgan-Wallace rose to become notable in the United Kingdom when she was selected as a contestant in the seventh series of the Channel 4 TV series, Big Brother, in 2006. She entered the Big Brother House on Day 12, and became known for her clashes with fellow contestants Nikki Grahame and Grace Adams-Short, and for being voted into the “House Next Door” by the public — a secret house, where she was forced to choose who, out of five new contestants, would become new housemates.[5][6][7][8][9][10] Horgan-Wallace reached the final on Day 93; she came third with 22% of the public vote.[11] She was the highest placed female housemate of the series.[12] It was reported that Horgan-Wallace’s popularity shocked the show’s producers, with tabloid sources suggesting that they had attempted to “engineer” the series’ finalists, and did not expect the swing in public support for her.[13]

In August 2010, she turned down an offer to appear in Ultimate Big Brother[14] in order to shoot her scenes as ‘Maria’ in the British urban comedy movie, Anuvahood instead.

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace at a red carpet event

Since 2007, Horgan-Wallace has been a frequent guest on the Big Brother support shows, Big Brother’s Big Mouth, Big Brother’s Little Brother, and latterly, since the show’s move to Channel 5 in 2011, Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.

2007-present: Transitions into television work

Since 2007, she has appeared in a number of episodes of Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe. She has also presented for shows such as T4. She appeared in BBC One‘s Test The Nation, on a team with several other Big Brother contestants.[15] She also made a small appearance on The Charlotte Church Show. She appeared in several episodes of the Red TV series Celebrity: Stars at Work, which aired in December 2007 and January 2008.[16] Following on from this, Horgan-Wallace signed a one series contract with Red TV to film a self-titled, fly-on-the-wall documentary Aisleyne. Four episodes were broadcast, the first being aired on 5 March 2008.[17][18]

In June 2008, Horgan-Wallace made a guest appearance on a special edition of The Friday Night Project, which aired after the launch of Big Brothers ninth series.[19] Her contributions to the show included a sketch which mocked her rivalry with former housemate Nikki Grahame.[20] In August 2008, she made a brief cameo appearance in The Kevin Bishop Show. In October 2008 Aisleyne appeared in Channel 4 and E4’s horror Dead Set, which was written by Charlie Brooker. She played herself in this show. She featured in two episodes – episode 1.01 and episode 1.05. In episode 1.05 she played a zombie version of herself.

On 2 March 2009 Aisleyne underwent a make-under for the BBC Three programme Snog Marry Avoid?,[21] presented by Jenny Frost. She was persuaded that a more natural look suited her. In May 2009 she was interviewed for the E4/CH4 programme – Big Brother: A Decade in the Headlines, written and presented by Grace Dent.

In March 2010 she appeared as a guest diner on the Living TV programme, Celebrity Restaurant in Our Living Room. On 5 May 2011 she starred in an episode of Celebrity Hens and Stags for Wedding TV.[22] She helped organize a stag night in Edinburgh including racing in an off-road buggy. In June 2011 she appeared as a contestant[23] in the TV3 (Ireland) series, Celebrity Salon. She finished runner-up behind TV presenter, Alan Hughes.

In January 2012 she appeared in the third series of the Channel 4 show Celebrity Coach Trip, alongside fellow Big Brother alumna Nikki Grahame. The pair were given a red card on Day 3 of the series after clashes with older celebrities including Edwina Currie and Jean Broke-Smith. From December 2012, Horgan-Wallace became a regular guest on the Loaded TV chat show, Looser Women Live, a programme regularly hosted by her friend, the model and fellow reality TV star, Nicola McLean.

On 11 February 2015 she appeared as a claimant on the ITV daytime show Judge Rinder, in a case of unpaid debt against her fellow former BB7 contestant Michael Cheshire, winning her case.[24]

Big Brother 16

In June 2015, after plans were revealed regarding former “legendary” housemates returning to the Big Brother 16 House as part of “Time Warp” week, Horgan-Wallace was amongst many who were hotly tipped to re-enter. On Day 32, fellow BB7 contestant Nikki Grahame re-entered alongside Brian Belo and Helen Wood. It was later revealed that Horgan-Wallace was meant to enter the House on Day 39, however the plans were scrapped for unknown reasons.

On Day 44, during that week’s shopping task, Horgan-Wallace made her return to the House as the fourth “Time Warp” housemate.

Other work

In 2006, she had a small part in the film Rollin’ with the Nines.[25][26]

After Big Brother, Aisleyne made numerous personal appearances in nightclubs around the UK. She hosted a show for the online radio station, Invincible,[27] was a guest commentator on BBC’s Asian Network[28] and made several guest appearances on Choice FM’s ‘Morning Vybe’ show.[15]

She worked as an agony aunt for More magazine[29] and wrote a weekly column for Reveal magazine covering Big Brother 8 as well as a daily blog on their website. She reprised this role for the programme’s ninth and tenth series.[30]

In September 2007, it was announced that she had taken control of her own career via her management company, Aisleyne Ltd, along with co-director Richard Skeels.

On 10 February 2008 Aisleyne released a fashion range named “Unique by Aisleyne”. She worked with the “high-end” fashion distributors Unique Collections Ltd, to design and produce the outfits. A complementary swimwear range was launched a few weeks later.[31]

It was announced on 24 April 2008, that Mainstream Publishing had bought the right to publish her autobiography, entitled Aisleyne: Surviving Guns, Gangs and Glamour.[32] This book was published on 7 May 2009. The launch party held on 6 May was attended by various celebrities, including Jodie Marsh, Charlie Brooker and Nate James.

On 24 and 27 March 2009, she co-hosted a radio show on SMUC Radio[33] with Eamonn McCrystal.

Horgan-Wallace plays the character ‘Maria’ in the British film comedy Anuvahood, which was released in the UK on 18 March 2011.

On 10 June 2011 she was a judge in the Miss Universe Ireland beauty contest in Dublin.[34]

Horgan-Wallace plays the character of ‘Jasmine’ in the forthcoming low-budget British horror movie, Serial Kaller, which was filmed in April and May 2013.

In March 2014 she launched her own celebrity boot camp named Aisleyne’s Booty Camp,[35] based in a Country House near Grantham, Leicestershire.

Modeling

Prior to her appearance on Big Brother,

Big Brother’s shame continues…

Big Brother’s shame continues…

Have the producers of BB no shame in their discrimination against Marc and their sycophantic nepotism for the so-called “BB Legends “ and the collection of spineless wasters now taking up space in the BB house? ?

There are many homeless people in the UK, whom need a place to live and I am sure they would be much more entertaining than “ Father Danny “ and his kowtowing , no personality, twofaced side – kicks.

Currently the delusional Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace’s is on a one woman ego trip and seems to have the full support of the BB team and the wider Big Brother fraternity.

Confrontation: Tempers once again flared as Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace and Marc O'Neil confronted each other in the Big Brother house on Wednesday evening

During the highlights last night, the ‘legendary, Aheem…’ housemate got into another intense row with Marc O’Neill, and shouted at the Irishman that at least she had a Wikipedia page.

Get Simon OUT!
Not Such a Twat

Firing back at Marc when he called her face “plastic” and “like Lego”, Aisleyne said:

“You can look at Wikipedia, because I have a Wikipedia and you don’t!”

For God’s sake, anyone can set up a Wikipedia page, providing you have access to the internet and two minutes to spare.

The Yorkshire Ripper and various other psychopaths have a Wikipedia page and you don’t hear them banging on about it.

The girl is a feckin disgrace to the human race and if Big Brother doesn’t step in soon she will hopefully disappear up her on back side.

Once again she was harassing Marc and being aggressive and confrontational and as usual that false git Danny charged to the rescue and poked his nose in where it didn’t belong.

I would even go so far as to say he is bulling Marc, but there’s no chance of Big Brother taking any action, after all Danny Boy will no doubt be a BB “ Legend “ in due course.

Back off Danny Boy, it’s none of your business and the real BB fans have got your number!

As usual the BB team and wider fraternity are delusional about what the public really think and they persist in promoting the likes of Nicky Graham & Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace’s as BB gold.

You just have to look back on last year when they were all so against Helen and were convinced she had no chance of winning.

This conviction was reaffirmed frequently on BBBOT , where Emma and the audience ( Super fans whom always get it wrong) practised nepotism on a nightly basis and were convinced they were calling it as it was.

Well they got that completely wrong and Helen walked away with the BB crown and good luck to her, she deserved it.

For the record I am still supporting Marc to win and I think it’s a disgrace the way that disgusting, creepy , smelly ,gross, nauseating, vulgar John McCririck laid into Marc about attacking BB “ Legend” Brian Belo and being responsible for his leaving over the wall.

Brian left of his own accord and boy is he milking it. It was good to see Charlie sticking up for Marc, but Aisleyne wasn’t to happy about it. Bothered?

It’s time Big Brother give Marc a break and give him a task or two. Thus far all the tasks have gone to “Father Danny “and his flock and poor Marc is often left out and ostracised. When will BB wake up to the fact that most viewers like Marc and he has more personality in his little finger than the rest of them put together.

Stop the Nepotism BB , It boring and not very nice.

 

Big Brother’s Nepotism continues……………

Big Brother’s: ‘Danny Wisker is s*** in bed and would sell his mum to be famous,’ blasts ex-housemate “

Well that is according to the wonderful Miss Biannca Lake whose brief appearance on BB last year was way to brief and something I’m still trying to come to terms with. I mean , was she for real? I sincerely hope not for the sake of her parents.

Having said that she was a breath of fresh air and the most entertaining thing on BB last year , apart from that nob Steven Goode , who was socially inadequate and ahem.. a bit mad really.

Big Brother 2014: Steven Goode

But  I digress.

My beef at the moment is  with Danny and his sycophantic side kicks. mainly Christian. Danny seems to be under the delusion that is  “The Father ” of the house  and its his full time job to protect the rest of his flock from the evil Marc O’ Neill.

Even before one person nominated yesterday (I suspect like most other viewers ) I knew what was coming. Marc and Sam would get the majority of noms and Harry would be thrown into the equation for good measure. And how right I was. The only surprise was Pie face’s inclusion , not that that upset me, I just thought all nominations would be for Marc & Sam.

Danny , The 29-year-old demolition worker has already appeared on ITV2’s Girlfriends, Sky Living’s Love Machine and as an extra in TOWIE , so there’s obviously a wanton desire on his part to raise his profile and subject us to as much of his wonderful self as possible.

And wasn’t this the same guy a few weeks ago got a hump because another housemate suggested he wanted to be famous?

And now he has teamed up with that ugly ( BB Legend ) slapper Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace he’s walking about like the cat that got the cream. Sour cream in my opinion and they are well suited.

Danny repeatedly butts into Marc’s discussions ( arguments) with other housemates and he has been aggressive and confrontational on numerous occasions towards Marc and yet the BB fraternity seem to love him? I think he is bang out of order and would love to see him up for nom and evicted , but that  cant happen whilst he is surrounded by his “followers”.

I posted last week about the nepotism BB shows towards BB Legends like Nicky Graham and Brian and my views have not changed. Both Brian and Nicky broke the BB rules in regards to being confrontational and evading someone space ( Marc & Helen)  and yet neither was told off or criticised for their actions during the “sickening”  exit interviews with Emma or BBBOTS team..

Helen Wood said Big Brother was edited against her [Wenn]

Big Brother 2015: Helen Wood reveals Nikki Grahame got a formal warning over her behaviour in the house.

Writing her column for the Daily Star, she said: “Things need putting into perspective. The public need to start reading between those fine lines. We all know my role is to be the panto villain.

“They weren’t going to show me making cups of tea and painting my nails.”

She added that she felt bullied while in the house that the show was edited against her. “I’m sick to death with people thinking it’s fine to slate me all the time, like I’m made of stone,” she continued.

“They pressed my buttons, that’s not shown, so when I explode it appears as if it’s come out of nowhere.

Similarly, Nikki got a formal warning, not shown. My formal warning, shown.

Give me Marc or Helen any day of the week over the rest of these wasters. At least with Marc & Helen you get what you see and they are honest and up-front.

Big Brother – Stop the Nepotism – its boring and unfair!
